Federal Work-Study is a need-based award made to enrolled, degree-seeking students as a form of self-help aid through part-time employment.
Work-study employment operates the same way as other jobs, with the following difference:
- Income earned from work-study employment does not count as income for the purposes of calculating a student’s financial aid package for the ensuing year.
- The amount earned through work-study is limited: the work-study award represents the amount a student can earn in a work-study job.
- Students are paid on an hourly basis for their work, not a fixed salary.
